is scheduled to go to his hawaii vacation, which will cost taxpayers $4 million. >> according to the hawaii reporter. >> the other bookmark is his inauguration. you don't want these things to go through the inauguration, either. so, that gives us a very tight window. >> look, politicians have a long track record of kicking the can down the road. they could certainly do it again. but i've characterized this bull market as sort of the rodney dangerfield of bull markets. absolutely no respect. and it just keeps climbing this wall of worry, as the old adage goes. >> talk a little bit about earnings and the things you are covering, health care, financials. >> certainly. >> how do you think earnings are going to shape up for 2013? >> i'm optimistic. we could see $110 for the s&p 500. the multiple right now is about 12 1/2. we get down to 12, 13 seems to be unlucky. we can't seem to break through that. but if we get through this cliff issue, and we will, one way or another, even if we go over the cliff, there will be some resolution afterwards. i think earnings are going to hang in there pretty we
